Expect the Unexpected

We made it to Delhi. Not without a little drama of course. Not to worry fellow bloggers, I swear these things only happen to me. The babies and our surrogate are doing great so far. Our drama started before we left at about midnight when we discovered that the woman we had entrusted to watch our house and our furry babies was a convicted felon who did time for drug trafficking. "Where do you meet these women?" Ruben always asks me. At the JFK ticket counter for Air India, we were informed we had too many bags and would either have to re-pack or pay over $500 in excess baggage fees. We had to make quick decisions - keep the diapers or the size 12 tennis shoes. The diapers won. We arrived at the hotel in Gurgaon. What the $&@/ was I thinking booking our hotel all the way out there? Seriously, our hotel is a compound in the middle of nowhere. I think we are moving to Svelte on Monday. Last night we had a great time catching up with "M" and "A" from New Year Dreaming. Today we met our surrogate at Dr. Jolly's for her 36 week scan. What an awesome experience. Our surrogate is extremely shy and somewhat difficult to read or converse with but we are so grateful she allowed us to be present for the scan. Twin 1 now weighs 6.7 pounds and twin 2 is coming in at 5.9. This woman is seriously huge. I can't believe they weigh this much. From the looks of things, it won't be much longer.
